Sup everyone! Here's my very, very, very work in progress David Icke article sandbox, an article that I HOPE could one day reach the quality to end up as the new David Icke page (after lots of input from the community, additions, revisions, and so on) and finally get this top tier crank out of Bronze rating and up to front page worthiness. It's clearly based on the current substandard article, though I haven't even touched anything above David's Naughty List. So if you care to read it for now, focus on the new sections I've added (which are so unfinished). This is the first article I've attempted to rewrite, be nice! :) Reverend Black Percy (talk) 16:52, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Love it[edit]

Three suggestions:

  1. Make the "forums" sections into a bullet-point-list rather than subsections, because it looks ugly and clogs up the table of contents.
  2. Make a "{{reflist|group=note}}" section and put notes into that rather than into the normal reflist. (eg, the pronunciation of Icke)
  3. Get more of Icke's direct views, rather than the views of his followers. (Nutty quotes are especially good!)

I'm so happy you like it! Even as lame as it may or may not be right now. I hope the snark hit decently close to home and that you think the sources were, if nothing else, pretty funny (believe it or not, I discarded a LOT more than I chose to include).
  1. A bullet point list or some kind of better structuring is certainly needed for the forums section. I plan on filling out the as-of-now empty forum subheaders first of all, there's literally tons of in-fucking-sane source material.
  2. I certainly mean to sort the refs and also split up notes and refs more properly. What'd you mean about the pronounciation though?
  3. I plan on doing a HUGE revamp of his own actual views to go along with the notes on his followers. I haven't even touched that part aside for adding the quote on the turqoise period, just for the record. But still, good point!
I'm excited for your honest feedback! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:53, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

You stole my disclaimer![edit]

But seriously, you caused this yourself by making your article so beautiful and not expecting men of the cloth to accost her. Legal transcripts here. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 12:54, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Racial conflict[edit]

Cite 113 doesn't actually have any racism, just freeman on the land type nonsense. Lord Aeonian (talk) 22:30, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that! Do you have an alternate article text for that entry in mind? If so, feel free to add it and we'll see how it sits! (The note at the top of the sandbox article explains that I'd very much like input from good editors such as yourself). All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 22:48, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Factual error on Lauren Southern page[edit]

She's a college drop-out, confirmed by her in this appearance on the Rubin Report, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cf_Y1sNlPzk. She dropped out two years in. It currently states on her page that she graduated. She didn't. I would edit this myself, but I'm in vandalbin. Placed there by your good self. Levi Ackerman (talk) 09:45, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
